A refreshingly simple and enjoyable movie!

You know I watch a great many movies, being disabled and not very mobile can do that to you.

From action to romance and thriller to comedy I pretty much enjoy any genre and being this way I have seen a lot of action packed movies. So when one comes my way that is simply a good story with fun and a pleasant message it is refreshing.

This is one of those movies! Good, fun, pleasant to watch and with clean non-violent message.

James Garner is good fun and plays the role well.

Jodie Foster is in it for only a few scenes but you know even seeing her at that age (11 i guess) was kind of neat! Vera Miles also plays her part well.

As for the "one little Indian" - Clay O'Brien, he plays his part well, and even the occasional dodgy haircut is forgivable! So in short, if you a looking for a good, clean, family movie I can recommend this one.

All the best from Southern Ireland! Kevin
